Only 46 days until President-elect Trump takes office. Yes, I am counting it down; a countdown to a better America.
What I most anticipate is Mr. Trump taking on sanctuary cities that are in full violation of federal law as it pertains to immigration. It’s about time someone takes the security of our country and draining of taxpayers seriously.
No, I do not have a cold heart. I feel for those who entered this country illegally for a better life, but that doesn’t negate the fact they are here without authorization or proper vetting. It doesn’t negate the fact they are allowed to receive benefits while millions of our citizens are struggling to survive, especially our homeless (including veterans). It also doesn’t negate the fact that some of those sneaking across our borders are criminals while others have ties to terrorist organizations.
Sanctuary cities are slapping the faces of immigrants who went through the proper channels as well as those who are still anxiously awaiting entry into our wonderful country … willing to embrace our flag, assimilate and become productive taxpaying citizens.
Do not accuse me of being un-Christian or bigoted – nothing could be further from the truth. There are ways to provide aid to those oppressed or in need without ignoring the law and the needs of our own citizenry our leaders are sworn to serve and protect.
